            EACL-03 Call for Workshop Proposals

       Proposal submission deadline: October 1, 2002

 The EACL-03 Organizing Committee invites proposals for workshops
 to be held at EACL-03. EACL-03 will take place in Budapest,
 Hungary, April 12-17, 2003 with workshops being held on Sunday
 and Monday, April 13 and 14, 2003.

*Workshop topics

 EACL-03 workshops provide organizers and participants with an
 opportunity to focus intensively on a specific topic within
 computational linguistics. Often, workshops concentrate on
 specific topics of technical interest (e.g., parsing
 technologies), particular areas of application for language
 processing technologies (e.g., NLP applied to IR), or
 community-wide issues that deserve attention (e.g.,
 standardization of resources and tools).

 We welcome proposals on any topic that is of interest to the EACL
 community, but we particularly encourage proposals that broaden
 the scope of our community through the consideration of new or
 interdisciplinary techniques or applications.

 We also encourage topics that are specific to the EACL community
 such as resources and tools for European or Mediterranean

*Workshop format

 Traditionally, workshops are shaped as mini-conferences, but we
 encourage proposers to consider other formats that exploit the
 fact that smaller settings allow for more interaction between
 participants (discussions, panels, working sessions). The default
 duration of a workshop is one day, but longer or shorter
 durations can be proposed (but should be justified).

 Please note that capacity limitations may cause us to request the
 organizers to shorten a workshop or to merge it with another
 workshop in a related area.

*Financial guidelines

 The workshop organisers will benefit from the standard logistic
 facilities provided for the conference e.g., room, equipment,
 coffee, proceedings. Any additional cost should be covered by the
 organisers (especially invited speakers, PC meetings etc.).

*Registration fees

 Participants pay a registration fee which is dependent on the
 duration of the workshop. Participants not registered for the
 main conference, pay a higher fee.


 Workshop proposals should provide sufficient information to
 evaluate the quality and importance of the topic, and the size of
 the interested community. Proposals should be 2-4 pages and
 contain the following information:

   - A title and brief description of the workshop topic.

   - The target audience and projected number of participants along
     with support for the projected count.  Supporting evidence could
     include a list of potential submitters, a list of conferences that
     contained papers on the proposed topic, the number of new
     companies focused on this topic, or recent funding initiatives
     that address this topic.

   - Resource needs such as room size and number of days.  Include any
     special requirements for technical support (computer
     infrastructure, etc.).

   - The name, postal address, phone number, e-mail address, and
     webpage of each chair.  In addition, indicate the chairs'
     background in the workshop area.

   - A preliminary programme committee

 Proposals should be submitted by electronic mail, in plain ASCII
 text, as soon as possible but no later than OCTOBER 1, 2002.

     The subject line should be:

     Please e-mail proposals and any inquiries to the Workshop
